I recently came back from a trip with two of my university friends. We went to a place called Tulum, just outside of Cancun, Mexico, it is one of the most relaxing vacation.
As much as it was a beach vacation, I wanted to check Chichen Itza off my bucket list. Named as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, it dates back approximately 1000 years. My two friends and I went for a full day along with a guided tour of the whole site. As much as you can see images of this historic place on Google or Instagram, there is a feeling that you get when it is 10 feet from where you stand. The feeling is incredible; you begin to imagine what it would have been like for these people who lived and worked there during that period.
We were there during a peak season in July. The weather is ever changing, having in be hot in one moment and rainy in the other. When visiting the site, I would recommend wearing a t-shirt, shorts, and runners. In a small bag, I brought sunscreen, a hat, a water bottle, and a lightweight rain jacket, if rain is in the forecast.
We went on a tour that included swimming in Cenote Dzitnup, visiting the city of Valladolid, as well as Chichen Itza. The tour included the transportation between the sites and the hotel, a buffet lunch, the entrance to Chichen Itza and the Cenote.
If you find yourself near Cancun, try to make your way down to Chichen Itza! Let me know in the comments down below if you have been or if you have any other favourite places down in Mexico.
